Morning: Yoga + Situps
Lunch Break: Walk, Bike, or Swim
Evening: Walk or Bike
“Yoga is very calming for me. I’ve always said that yoga saved my sanity and my life,” says Debra.
This is why she starts her day with a grounding yoga practice. Debra works from home and during her lunch break she goes for a walk, a bicycle ride, or possibly even a 30-minute swim. In the evenings, she and her husband might take a walk or ride bikes to dinner.
Workout-inspired emotional pick-me-ups are another reason Debra maintains her workout routine (and has for more than four decades). “There’s a lot of stress involved in my job and so over the years, to manage the stress, I’ve found that exercise is the key for me,” she says.
How does she stays on a healthy path? “I have a Fitbit and count my steps, and I always ate healthily, but I decided I wanted to eat organic.” So Debra overhauled her whole approach to mealtimes. Her diet consists of very little red meat and sugar but is high in organic fruit and vegetables.
